Storyline

In a future not too far away, Steve Battier, an elderly, terminally ill multi-millionaire, accepts the offer of a company - RPG - that in exchange for a high monetary sum, provides a very select group of clientèle the chance to be young again. For 10 hours, 10 millionaires from around the world, men and women of fame and power, are transferred to attractive and healthy younger bodies, to live in a world of temporary rejuvenation, in a game of real thrills, where every hour someone must die. After returning to the body of a man of 23 years, enjoying the pleasures of sex, and experiencing the adrenaline of violence and power over life and death, Steve is willing to do anything to stay young forever... But what we may have experienced is not always what appears to be. Written by mgnfilmes

A failed attempt to make a Portuguese sci-fi movie. Portugal has to keep trying but not with this quality.
10 September 2013 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

This attempt by Tino Navarro and David Rebordão to make a Portuguese sci-fi movie didn't go well.

The acting is bad. I've seen worse but in general it is bad. Some actors did well but not enough to save the movie.

The plot is simple. 10 old people pay to have their minds transfered to a new body to play a 10 hour game in which they fight for the chance to be young as long as they can. At each hour one of them has to die. This could be a good movie, but it missed the "good" part.

I didn't care for the characters! At all! I hate movies where I don't feel anything. I felt nothing in this movie. The camera was always shaking! You get used to it but it's annoying. And the whole movie was too predictable. The end wasn't, but I didn't like it anyway. And the movie had some flaws. But I'm not gonna point them. Don't wanna spoil anything (not that there's anything to spoil but yeah)

My opinion: Bad movie. Don't waste your money. Watch it at home if you're curious but don't expect much.

2/10. Not 1/10 because I liked the movie idea but unfortunately I hated everything else.
